Feat- He's Holding a Thermal Detonator

So I think this feat was not thought out well. Pretty much impossible to get (in the early tiers) because their team doesn't last long enough for me to try applying 40 thermals, even when i am trying to not kill them. On other GCs I don't think that there were feats that I couldn't complete because my team was too powerful. Its really just academic anyway because the rewards for the feat are garbage, but I thought it was strange

  • Did you use Jawas?
  • No! I didn't even think of that! thank you, I just assumed I had to use BH for that feat as well. Were you able to get it using jawas?

    I got tier 1 using Jawas. 3-4 I think I used Zam lead.
  • This one doesn't seem to be cumulative either, I just ran tier 5 a handful of times with no luck, anyone confirm either way about it being cumulative?

  • Tier one. Zam and Greedo. All that’s needed

    It doesn't seem to be. I beat t5 after having achieved the feat in lower tiers and nothin' doin'. I think the cumulative thing on the other GC may have been a bug.
  • Yeah, they still need to add counters to these things so we know what we're doing, but the "too powerful" thing won't be an issue after they add the auto-complete.

    In the meantime, as mentioned, t4 and below just use Jawas. I actually only used 4 Jawas so I could get undersized as well.
  • Zam lead for the lower tiers. Rey-led Jawas for the later tiers. On a guildie's suggestion, I did T7 with Rey/Wat/Scavenger/Engineer/Nebit. Tank tech on Nebit, pile lifeblood on him. Try not to die.
  • Rewards wise tier 7 is the only "interesting" one anyway and even there 3x Mk5 detonators? So awesome...
    But it can be done (tier 7) by trying to stall it out a bit (not doing a second disintegrate f.e.) while applying some thermals with Dengar and Zam.

  • It would be nice if CG integrates more than just 3 feats per GC. This thermal detonator one is impossible for me to achieve, because my BHs are G12+ and my Jawas are too strong for the lower tiers, but too weak for the highest tiers.. the BHs I have barely invested in are lower than the others.

    Try using a partial team of jawas on lower tiers. I was having the same problem until I dropped to just Scav and Nebit. Unless Scavenger by himself is too strong, there is a comp that will work for you.

    For the higher tiers, I just ran Rey lead with jawas. Quite bizarre - but effective. I think on tier 7 I swapped in R2 for more survivability.

    I have the opposite problem. My jawas are such trash they get creamed even on t1. And not worth gearing them.

    Jawa Engineer, Jawa scavenger, hoda works for lower tiers.
  • I found this team worked: Rey, General Kenobi, Jawa Scavenger, Jawa Engineer, Chief Nebitt. My Jawas are all gear 8, and I was able to clear tier 7. Rey's Lifeblood really helps them survive!

    Kudos to you! I had given up on tier 6 and 7 until I saw your post. I have r7 Mando, Karga, and Bossk, plus g12 Zam and Dengar. When I saw that your squad worked, it gave me the hope to persevere and I finally cleared all the challenges! You are a hero!

    As for the early tiers, my g12 Zam was able to solo them and meet the challenge requirement for thermal detonators. No Jawas needed - it was time for bounty hunters to shine!
  • If your jawas are relic'd up, just put scavenger in by himself and take his mods off.

    Zam's lead puts thermal dets on the enemy when BH use their specials, so that's an option too.

    I tried that with r7 Bossk, Jango, Greef, and Mano but couldn't get it to work because it took too long to fulfill the contract. I found that you need to get the contract ASAP and disintegrate one of the tanks, so having her contract be so slow to fulfill makes things really tough. Maybe I can keep trting.

    EDIT: I just tried it again with Zam lead, Bossk, Dengar, Greef, and Mando and it was too easy. Although I don't have a count of thermal detonators (TDs), it felt like I had way more than my previous runs. I did something different this time. Previously, I tried to avoid setting off the TDs with Zam because I wanted her to add more with her Electro-goggles, but it just didn't add enough. This time, I tried to get her to set off as many as I could so that she could gain turn meter, thus increasing her rate of cooldown and allowing her to throw more TDs sooner. This hlped me fulfill the contract faster which gives Zam stealth to save her from the counters.

    EDIT 2: It's not fool-proof, but when you get the right start, it flows pretty smoothly. After 4 tries, I have a 50% success rate with this setup. Speed and turn order matters, of course. Usually Bossk taunts, enemy IG-88 does his AOE, then Greef Karga takes a turn and dispels all debuffs on my BHs. If Karga gets ability blocked, it's over. Also, Kuill's unique buff seems to add enough tenacity that if you don't have the contract by time he starts spreading that buff, you'll have a rough time. Of course, it's not over, because you can dispel buffs with Greef Karga. Now, as I said before, your game plan is to blow up detonators to feed turn meter to Zam to put on more TDs. The best part is you have a team of assists! When Mando can, use his Transpierce to call Zam to attack someone with a TD. Alternatively, whenever Bossk, Greef Karga, or The Mandalorian use a special ability to call an assist, there is a chance to put on a TD, so even if the target has no TDs, you could put one on and still have Zam detonate it on the assist. When you fulfill the contract, I recommend disintegraring IG-11 first because he's tanky and this lost doesn't have a lot of punch. Disclaimer: I still count easily count the TDs, so I'm just assuming I got 40, but with how many turns Zam was getting, I'm sure they got 40.

    Final thoughts: This list is super fun! I think Zam's leader ability is aptly named Having a Blast!

  • T5-7 I used Zam lead (g11 no zeta), g11 greef, g12 Dengar, g12 mando (unique zeta), and R7 malak. Fear really shuts down the other team once malak is taunting so you have enough time to apply enough thermal dets. When it's time to win, Malak was the only one left standing and soloed the remaining scoundrels. Note that Kuill and 88 are a threat to him with Shock and Heal Immunity.

    Pray tell please, how did you know it was time to win? Were you counting TD attempts?

    Old fashioned way - counting the applied dets on my fingers :smile:
    For zam and dengars AOE's I counted resist's on 1x speed (5 chars + an additional det from her lead, 6 - #resists). Greef, Dengar, and Mando just add one when the used their other specials. So you can get 20 pretty quickly on the opening moves. Zam gets TM every time she explodes a det with her basic, so she can cycle See What Sticks and Electro pretty often.
    I've already given feedback on the need for some sort of feat meter in the GC thread, even if it's just a bar (like a raid boss health) or percentage (like BH payouts).
